I saw one today. It had crate damage on the tank, so dealer ordered a new one. Several scratches, but no dents. The headlight looks ultra cheap; highly disappointed at that. Just cheap plastic, and not even smooth; just crappy plastic. Looks 3rd rate. I was almost sure I'd end up liking it better than the 890 Dukes (normal and R), but the Dukes are definitely worth the difference IMO. I'm now deciding if the regular or R model. The Dukes have a perfectly balanced suspension, both sagging the same amount front and rear (890= 13/16", 890R= 9/16"), and the MT-09= 2/16"F, 12/16"R, and the preload looked basically at the minimum, so adding any more would make that balance even worse. Fit and finish is no contest. The only hit on the KTMs are the super crappy incandescent turn-signals. The 890 suspension is not adjustable, but everybody says it's superior to the MT-09 for sure. The R has adjustable compression and rebound, but no preload. I have no doubt the R would feel better in the twisties, but not sure if too stiff for my 165-lb frame (without gear) over broken pavement, or not too bad. That's what I'm trying to determine. At any rate, coming from an MT-10, was expecting to like the MT-09 better, but after scrutinizing them carefully for over an hour, I had to eliminate it. The main reason is it has the most aggressive knee bend of them all, and my old knees won't take that kindly. The KTMs, with no peg feelers, both have better cornering clearance, and better leg room, with the R with 1/2" more cornering clearance, and 1/2" more leg room than the 890, due to a 1" higher seat, but seat looks the same (and actually comfy). So will leave Yamaha for this round, folks. Hope I don't regret it. Ha ha.
